Happiness is homemade in so many ways when you’re baking up cookies like these—not only from the warm and pleasing aroma that fills the house, but also because nothing brings your family closer than sweet treats you’ve made together.

After all, the best part of anything homemade is the joy and love that goes into making it.

When you pair your tasty cookies with the fruity flair of pear, apple, and peach notes in our Sutter Home Chardonnay, you can expect lots of smiling eyes and raised glasses from everyone.
